It is a platform for other employees that are having issues when implementing products.

  • Ease of the use of application
  • Application does not freeze while attaching data files or pictures
  • Unlimited data storage
We use Social Text as a platform to air our issues with different departments. We voice our concerns and suggestions so we can help find a solution to the problems we incur on a daily basis. We need to have social text as an app so we can communicate in real time not only during work hours.

Socialtext was used as an information repository or a pseudo Content Management System. It was mostly curated by the Product Management team but used all across the company. Different departments including support, and product development also used it but not as extensive as the PM team.

We had 2 versions of socialtext (Internal and External) - You can create private or public workspaces in socialtext. We used the external workspace as our knowledge base and was the to go place for any of our client and employees to learn more about the product features. The internal workspace helped us collaborate on a specific project or a feature. I used the wiki to do a lot of requirements gathering.
  • Version history - Always keeps the edited versions and one can revert back any time
  • Creating and Editing an article is very easy and intutive
  • Sharing the articles with peers
  • Search needs a ton of improvements. It was very slow a year ago
  • Search result quality was also not that good
  • I know they have improved their UI recently but when i used it last year it did not really have any design elements which could be used to make the articles look more presentable. It was important for us as we used it for external communication as well.
Does your company have a collaborative environment ? If not Wikis would not be helpful at all
